Prevention is better than cure – Except in climate change

Prevention_is-_better_than_cure


Many state leaders are far happier to fund disaster repair than to invest in disaster avoidance. Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) has been filling in the reports with 'costs' of prevention and cost of disaster. But some state leaders are not ashamed to inform the benefits of heating the planet! The loss of common sense is the biggest human disaster in case of climate change

The most interesting part of this article is the sentence, "Just as a fish can't tell you how the water is, most Australians seem unaware just how detached from reality our debate about the climate emergency is".

Luckily, we have in our planet's biodiversity an animal called 'Ostrich'. It is said that it digs its head in the sand when enemy approaches, wishing that enemy would pass by. Can we change the spelling of Ostrich to 'Austrich'??
